While President George W. Bush marked the National Day of Prayer with a service at the White House for each of the eight years he served, this year, President Obama decided against holding a public ceremony.
However, in the midst of a war against radical Islam and his push to takeover health care, President Obama found time to hold a White House dinner honoring the Muslim holiday of Ramadan Kareem. And the guest list did not only include Muslims. Many Washington elites attended the ceremony including some Republicans such as Senator Richard Lugar.
But there's more. There are plans to hold a national prayer gathering of Muslims on September 25 in front of the US Capitol Building. According to one source, they are expecting at least 50,000 to attend from Mosques all across America. They say that they want Americans to see how they pray.
The planners of the event even set up a web site http://islamoncapitolhill.com It's a shame that the Obama White House ignored the National Day of Prayer and instead issued a paper proclamation, meanwhile he has a White House Celebration for a Muslim holiday. I have no problem with the Muslim holiday but I do have a problem when it is celebrated in lieu of the National Day of Prayer. With Obama ramming down Ramadan down the throats of Americans, I hope Americans realize their leader uses faith as a political prop.
